For a while I have been thinking something has been changing in my setup, and my boat has been flying lower than it use to when I first picked it up. My solution was to keep adding more lift via AOA and flap. I finally am almost certain it was my wand causing me to loose lift. Amac disagrees but I changed to a stock wand versus my custom tapered one and the boat nearly leaped out of the water. It was such a relief for a precious few seconds to be flying high again! That is when I had my second great epiphany of the day as my front vertical started to stall and loose all lateral resistance dunking me in the 38 degree water. First is it was definitely a stall(not ventilation) second it started from the dagger board going through the wake of the wand. Bear showed up after my third pit stop on the dock to mess with settings in hope of alleviating some of the bite issues. He rigged up and used an unsanded foil and reported no problems of stall. Though he did have numerous rudder ventilation's, I watched most of his session. So this leaves me with a ton of questions and I am happy that we have so many foils in between the two of us to test out different combinations till we can lick the cold water issue.
Side notes, sorry if I let any Brits down not posting about how wonderful and warm sunny San Diego was for the PCC's. The west coast has a real good start and a great bunch of guys and families involved. I am looking forward to another trip out west to go sailing before worlds. Charlie and Hans are quick! Need to get them in some good waves and show them all the real fun. I am sure most of the people that would read this have probably already seen this but oh well.
